Why did you choose your profession?:
I have an affinity to healthcare and when majority of people think of healthcare, they strive to be either an MD or a DO, but for me, being a nurse practitioner does it for me. I choose this profession to help treat people and not only their disease and the nursing model approach to care fits that for me. I love what I do because I care and enjoy being a healer.
Current Passion Project:
I am currently working on developing a non-profit organization that will be tailored towards mental health awareness that are surrounded to both men and women but more specifically, the minority population.There is also an international piece to it and it involves sending medication to 3rd world countries that lack basic primary care.
Who was/is your inspiration?
Both of my parents were my inspiration to what I have become thus far. They're both Nurses.
